Nature and Extent of Development:
Refurbishment of Templemore Town Hall for re-use as a Cultural and Economic Centre and the development of an associated civic plaza at Main Street, Templemore, Co. Tipperary.

The prosposal would materially affect the character of the protected structure and the character of the Architectural Conservation Area.
